ISKL by Veritas took the sustainable project category.

DUBAI: Veritas Design Group was one of the 2019 recipients of the Cityscape Award by Dubai’s Cityscape Awards Global. Its project, the International School of Kuala Lumpur, won the sustainable project category.

The award was presented by Dubai’s prestigious developer and architecture to recognise the outstanding designs by architects and developers globally. Veritas design group principal Ng Yiek Seng and ISKL Director of Project Operations Dave Perrau received the award at the cityscape award ceremony held on Sept 25 at Intercontinental Festival City Dubai, UAE.

ISKL by Veritas was among the four shortlisted projects under the sustainability project, namely the Tsimshatsui Waterfront Revitalization and K11 Atelier King's Road, both in Hong Kong, as well as Titan Integrity Campus Bangalore in India.

ISKL is the first school in Malaysia designed to achieve the platinum Green Building Index (GBI) Platinum rating for sustainable design. Previously, it also won the Gold award under the “education” category by the Malaysian Institute of Architects (PAM).

The campus is set on approximately 26 acres of land in Ampang Hilir. The soul of the school is the performance centre with a proper theatre, recital hall, black box and a multipurpose hall/black box looking into an amphitheatre that greets the visitors on arrival.

The jewel in the school is further tucked to the corner where rainforest trees such as Meranti and Berlian are planted in a green enclave with a water source forming part of the space.

While it is still sparse with the young trees, its legacy and learning opportunity will be in the future in about 20 years’ time.
